Full Moon In Libra – Equal Relationships

On April 16th, 2022 we have a Full Moon at 26° Libra. Every Full Moon in Libra is an opportunity to put ourselves into other people’s shoes and to understand where they’re coming from.  It’s in our nature to want to get things our own way (Sun in Aries). Through our interactions with others, however, we learn that our needs need to be weighed up with those around us to find a common ground – even if that means that we have to compromise and let go of some of the things that we really want.  Over time, this continuous feedback helps us understand and adjust our behavior. “When two people tell you you’re drunk, it’s probably a good idea to take a cab and go home”.  This Full Moon in Libra will not only help us have better relationships, but it will also help us understand ourselve...

Full Moon in Libra April 2022

The Full Moon occurs at 19:55 (BST) on April 16, 2022, at 26°Li45′. At the Full Moon in Libra, the Moon lies opposite the Sun in Aries. As the Sun is exalted in Aries, this is like the heat of the noon-day Sun. The questions that arise during this time are: how do we maintain our equilibrium when we all have different needs? How do we balance the need for a relationship and to feel connected (the Moon in Libra) with the desire to have independence and to do what we want, when we want (the Sun in Aries)? Compromise is the key. Pluto in Capricorn squares the lights. ‘It’s complicated’ is sometimes used as a relationship descriptor and yes, Pluto square the lights is indicative of that! There are shadows and conditioning. There are forces at work in the outside world that we can&#...

Weekly Astrology Forecast – April 11 – 17, 2022

Excerpt from Patreon – The Sun moves on to conjoin Eris on April 14. It puts the spotlight on the things that we have perhaps tried to sweep under the carpet. But the things that are causing disruption and discord in our lives are now out in the open for all to see. It’s important that we acknowledge what we experience as Eris is only pointing out what we need to know. Eris is not afraid to go against the grain, to sing her own song, loudly (in Aries!), even if it clashes with the rest of the choir! And sometimes we too need a little of Eris’s brash confidence, to call out problems and to break out of old constructs (bearing in mind the Sun is still sextile Saturn) that inhibit our true self. Eris can feel chaotic, but this is also super creative energy, the kind that pushes us up an...

Jupiter Conjunct Neptune In Pisces – April 12th, 2022

A few days ago I was searching for a document and came across an old photo from a holiday in Greece. I was in a seafood restaurant and was holding two giant conch-like seashells over my ears. It’s said that you can hear the ocean when you put an empty seashell on your ear. I clearly recall listening to the magic, otherworldly sounds from these washed-up seashells put on display on the dining table. What we are really hearing when we place a seashell over our ears, is not the ocean, but the noises around us that are altered by the physics of these Fibonacci-shaped shells. The shells filter all the background noise and find a new meaning, a new melody. The seashell, through its Fibonacci-sequence pattern, transforms what is otherwise raw sound into a universal sound pattern. While we may...

Excerpt from Patreon – Mars conjoins Saturn and squares the Nodal axis on April 5. It’s a tense day in the cosmos. Action or inaction may be precisely the question that we are asking around this time – which is best? What we decide now is critical for our spiritual evolution. Remember, Saturn too is Lord of Karma. Do we push through or wait? Do we finish what we started or quit whilst we’re behind? Do we keep fighting for what we want, or do we accept that we can’t move any further in that direction? Mars in Aquarius could be seen as a fight for freedom or a fight for humanity! Saturn in Aquarius limits and restricts yet also asks us to manage these things more effectively for the group. We could also say that the universe is simply asking us – what do you want (Mars) to manifest (Sa...

The Astrology Of April 2022 – Jupiter Conjunct Neptune

April 2022 is perhaps the most anticipated month of the year. That’s of course, because Jupiter, the great benefic, joins Neptune in the sign of Pisces. This is a unique event: Jupiter-Neptune conjunctions happen only once every 13 years, and Jupiter-Neptune conjunctions happen in Pisces only every 200 years or so on average. What makes this conjunction so special is that Pisces is the ruling sign of both Jupiter (traditional ruler) and Neptune (modern ruler). So we have both rules of Pisces coming together in a once-in-a-lifetime, magical astrological event. And what makes April even more special, is that Venus joins in during the last week of April. Talk about magic   Keep in mind that conjunctions (just like New Moons) are not necessarily times when things happen – it’s when ...

New Moon in Aries April 2022

https://www.leahwhitehorse.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/New-Moon-Aries-Clip.mp4 The New Moon in Aries takes place at 07:24 (BST), April 1, 2022. Video Transcript “The Sabian symbol for this lunation is a triangular shaped flight of wild geese. Well firstly, they are flying in formation. So this symbol tells us that there is an order to everything. Even when life seems quite chaotic, there is an order, a natural order to things. The idea of the wild geese specifically, when they are flying, when the one in the lead becomes tired, then one of the other birds will take over and they are very group oriented. So we’ve got the idea of leadership, knowing when to lead and knowing when to follow. These are really important thoughts around this time.” I recorded a 37mins astro-tarot...

New Moon In Aries And The Oscar Slap

I’m a personal development workshop and retreat junkie.  A few years ago I attended a Psychodrama workshop focused on healing and embracing the shadow. At some point, we got split into groups of 2, and our task was to insult our partner in as many ways as possible, until they got ‘triggered’. Since this was psychodrama work, we would of course ‘act’ the insults by playing a role – it was not that we were purposefully being nasty. This was just a guided exercise to trigger our blind spots and wounds so we could understand and ultimately heal them. My partner started insulting me. At first I didn’t get triggered. But then he said something that really hurt me. I knew he was acting, I knew he didn’t mean it, but still, I got hurt.  No matter how much personal development work we’ve...

Chiron’s Myth – What Does It Mean

Astrology is based on archetypes and synchronicity. Our neighboring planets, Venus and Mars, have been named after the 2 Roman Gods, and the qualities of these Roman gods are reflected in the astrological qualities of Venus and Mars. Venus was the Goddess of beauty and love, and in astrology, Venus rules beauty and love. Mars was the God of war, and in astrology, Mars rules how we assert ourselves and go for what we want, and yes, how we fight or go to war. The same thing applies to Chiron, who was named after the Greek centaur and demigod. If we look at the Greek myth of Chiron, we understand the qualities and the themes Chiron rules in our natal chart. In astrology, Chiron is known as the Wounded Healer. But there’s much more to Chiron. Let’s dissect the Greek myth to understand what ...

Weekly Astrology Forecast – March 28 – April 3, 2022

Excerpt from Patreon – The conjunction between Mercury and the Sun on April 3 takes place on the next Sabian along which is A Serpent Coiling Near A Man And A Woman. If we don’t deal with the pent-up anger hinted at in the previous symbol, this can lead to base behaviour. We are more easily tempted, more easily thrilled by the promise of an easy ‘kill’ or win. These ideas come to mind if we place the story in the context of the Christian mythology that this symbol seems to allude to. However, if we break the chain of connection to Adam and Eve, we could also say that the snake is inviting humanity to get down to their level, touch the Earth. Snake has deep wisdom to impart from the farthest reaches of our history. When the Sun and Mercury unite, there is potential to receive messages...
